I have to move Netapp FAS8020 Storage system to New datacenter in different floor. Could anyone please guide the steps to do it.
Can i simply
Shutdown the Netapp Storage controller and disk shelfs
Remove the controller and disk shelf from Rack
Mount the storage in new rack
power it on
Anyone had this experience before please guide.

Here's the offical power down doc -> https://kb.netapp.com/app/answers/answer_view/a_id/1003836/~/what-is-the-procedure-for-graceful-shutdown-and-power-up-of-a-storage-system .
But that's basically it. I can tell you that pre-labeling cables (both sas and network/fc) helps smooth things along when doing a forklift.
